If you are like me, you’ve probably never heard of Safesha.
I just became aware of this product when I was approached by the company. Safesha offered to let me try out their product in exchange for an honest review.
Safesha is a hand sanitizer that is more natural than regular sanitizer; plus, it has an extra ingredient to make it more moisturizing.
It is scented with essential oils and uses olive oil as a moisturizer, so the ingredients do sound very promising and safe!
I decided to first compare labels with my regular hand sanitizer.
- They both have the same active ingredient: ethyl alcohol
- They have very similar ingredients, but it is notable that the Safesha has both olive oil and aloe for moisturizers.
- Purell has synthetic fragrance while Safesha has essential oils. The essential oils are much more preferable to me than synthetic fragrance.
Trying It Out
I feel lucky because Safesha sent me all three varieties to try:
- sweet orange
I have a bottle in my car for when I get back into the car (shopping cart handles….ewww…). I also have a bottle in my diaper bag, and one in my house.
So how is it?
- I love the scents! I like to diffuse essential oils occasionally, so I am familiar with these scents and enjoy them.
- It does have a different feel to it. My sister felt the same way, as did my three-year-old daughter (she said it felt like there were little bumps in it, but not sure how she got that impression). It almost has a sticky feel right away, but once I got used to the texture, I didn’t notice it as I used it subsequently.
- Safesha let me know that the “bumpy” feeling can occur when you rub the product too hard. The product normally doesn’t feel that way and dries quickly.
Safesha feels like a more luxurious hand sanitizer when I use it. 🙂
And I do like it.
- It is scented with essential oils versus synthetic fragrances (which sometimes can have sketchy ingredients in them).
- It doesn’t leave you with the alcohol smell of Purell.
- It’s a Minnesota based company! They are right next door to us. 🙂
- Safesha is a company founded by women.
- It feels more high-end than Purell.
- I didn’t care for the initial sticky feel, but that was just the first few times I used it. I got used to it and didn’t notice it anymore.
- It is expensive for hand sanitizer (in my opinion). This is sold at Bed Bath and Beyond, and I wanted to check out how much it was selling for. It is currently $9.99 per tube. This becomes a problem for me personally because I tend to lose my hand sanitizer a lot, and when it’s inexpensive, it doesn’t matter, but if I’m paying $10 for it, it’s a little more frustrating for me. (I know, I know…it’s kind of my fault for being absent minded. 😉 ) I honestly already misplaced my lavender tube, and I’m sad because I really liked it!
Like I said, if you are interested in checking it out, it is sold at Bed Bath and Beyond.
It is also available at Amazon.
It could be a nice gift if you are looking to pamper someone, or possibly yourself.
Overall, I like the product, and I like what the company stands for.
Thanks for letting me try it out!
